My Internist put me on BCP today - a very low dose of OT. She also wants me to take 100MG of Minocyline for seven days once a month the week before my cycle. I get one or two cysts a month and there rear their heads right when I start my cycle, so she is thinking the will help, but she reiterated to only take it for 7 days and then stop. She also said that if my face starts to clear with the BCP, that I don't have to take the Mino. We both agreed that, for me, topicals are basically useless and just to stick with Klaron, Eucerin Renewal moisturizer and Neutrogena On The Spot only when I need it. When I do have to treat a cyst, I do it with Hydrocortisone cream, Queen Helen's, and Ibuprofen. The last three I had, I was able to keep to get rid of quicker and without hardly any scarring using this method. I know my acne is hormonal because I had perfect, beautiful skin my entire life until my late twenties when I went on Norplant. Since then I have had cystic acne. I would apprecite any information from anyone who has been on Ortho-Tricycline. I am both excited and nervous about trying it.
Lucky,
How long have you been off Norplant? I attribute my adult-onset acne to depo-provera --acne/oily skin is a very common side effect. i didnt properly inform myself before and was not told of this by doctors--not even my derm pickked up on it. I have only been off of it 2-3 months, and although the BC im on is helping , yasmin, i fear depo will make this a long battle.
